Why hire a bird sitter through Airtasker?

Having a bird as a pet is enjoyable, but let’s face it: you can’t exactly be with them all the time. And when you can’t count on a family member or friend to watch over your bird, we can connect you to a nearby bird sitter who you can depend on.

When you request a bird sitter near you on our platform, you get a convenient and budget-friendly sitter who has worked with other birds. Someone who’s been reviewed and rated by pet owners like yourself! It’s much more comfortable than looking for bird boarding near you since you won’t need to take your pet out of their familiar and relaxed environment. Plus, it only takes minutes to put up a task, find sitters, and make an appointment with the one who fits your needs.

To start looking for a bird sitter near you, tap the “Post a task” button on this page and fill out the form. Tap “Get quotes” and wait for the offers to come in. Then, pick the one you like best and tap to confirm your appointment. It’s that easy!

Top Bird Sitting related questions

Where can I find bird sitter near me?

You can find a bird sitter near you right here on Airtasker! It only takes minutes, plus you can find a sitter who fits your budget and needs. If your pet isn’t the only one that needs looking after, we can also help you find available house sitters who can keep things in order while you’re out on your trip or night out.

Can Airtasker provide exotic bird boarding?

Airtasker can connect you to bird boarding for common types - exotic birds require more species-specific training. The advantage of a bird sitting service at a nearby facility is that your pet will be in a comfortable and familiar environment. Plus, the sitter will be dedicated to their needs, unlike the minders at a boarding facility who need to watch over multiple pets. To request a bird sitter near you, tap the “Post a task” button on this page.

What should I ask my bird sitter?

First off, ask your Tasker about their experience in watching over birds, especially birds like yours. You can ask for references in addition to their customer reviews and ratings. Next, ask how they handle pet emergencies. If you have time, ask to schedule a meeting before the actual appointment, so that they can meet your birds and familiarise themselves with your instructions. Lastly, ask for their contact information and don’t forget to give them yours.

How can I prepare my bird for sitting or boarding?

First, make caring for your bird easy—prep the supplies, including food and treats. Arrange things in such a way that your sitter will be able to feed and give water to your pet regardless of your bird’s temperament or attitude towards the sitter. Next, introduce your bird and sitter to each other. Gauge their level of comfort with each other to avoid any accidents that may scare your pet, injure your sitter, or cause damage in your home.

What does a bird sitting service include?

Bird sitting services usually cover feeding, cage cleaning, plus treats and playtime for your feathered friend. This involves a Tasker going to your house on a regular basis (e.g. daily or twice a day) to care for your bird. What makes it better than bringing your pet to a boarding facility is that your bird gets to stay in your own home. Plus, your Tasker will be dedicated to their care during their stay. 

 

Though the details may vary depending on your pet’s own needs and the Tasker you hire, here’s what you can expect when you book a bird sitting service through Airtasker:

 

Feeding

The Tasker stops by your house and refills your bird’s supply of food and water. To make sure that what’s left in their dish isn’t just hulls, you should have the container emptied, cleaned, and refilled every time your bird sitter visits. Also, it’s best that you set up your pet’s cage in a way that makes it easy for your sitter to feed them without provoking your pet or getting injured. Some birds can be quite territorial, so it’s best you plan the logistics carefully.

 

Cage cleaning

Some Taskers may offer cage cleaning services as well. Your bird sitter swaps out the paper lining their cage and makes sure that your birds don’t put their waste in their food and water bowls. If you are away from home for a week or longer, your Tasker may also need to do a thorough cleaning of the cage bars and perches. Demonstrate how to safely transfer your bird to another location while the cage is being cleaned, and make sure your bird will follow your Tasker’s commands for leaving and going back inside the cage. 

 

Treats and playtime

Your pet will also need their regular exercise and roaming time while you’re out. Brief your Tasker about how to get them out and back inside the cage, and let them know how long you’d like your bird to fly around the house. If your bird knows any tricks or games such as foraging for treats, your Tasker may like doing these with your pet. Just make sure that your Tasker can keep your pet safe while in flight - check for open or broken doors and windows, or any clutter that your bird may pick up and play with.

Pet bird Transport (including large cage)

$30

Moonee Ponds VIC, Australia

22nd Apr 2021

I need my pet galah (Winston) brought from the pet sitter in Sandringham to our apartment in Dorcas Street, Southbank on Monday the 26th April. As we are flying back late, it would have to be late in the evening (9.30/10pm drop off in Southbank). Winston will travel in this pet carrier and his cage will also need to be transported. Winston will be in the pet carrier upon collection from the pet sitter so no handling is required. If you have any questions, let me know.

Excellent service from Thisal - picked up our pet Galah and cage from the pet sitter and brought him back to us :) Great communication and punctuation- would definitely recommend Thisal for all your pet transporting needs!

No dogs or cats allowed near them. Baby sit my three birds in their cages one is a dove his 20 years old much loved and cared for his name is manly and my two budgies called Mister and bluey. They need clean water and seed dailey. Starting From 21st Febuary 2021 to 25th of March 2021 they need a safe place away from magpie birds as i know how danger it is for my birds. They like to be covered at night and a little sun during the day but not totally 100%. Use a cover for some shade. Manly likes to sun bake in a safe place with supervision as a magpie tried to kill millie my pet girl dove and hurt her so indoors would be idea during day and night!! Manly likes to walk around inside indoors make sure you dont step on him and no cats or dogs allowed near him. My budgies dont fly around indoors they are to hard to catch i think.

Pet Sitter for our Cat and two small birds.

$70

Caloundra QLD 4551, Australia

1st Jul 2021

Hi, We are looking for someone who can help us by taking care of our pets, until we find a permenant rental that accepts them. We have been living in tempory accomodation since April, after moving back from Melbourne, and need to find a new carer for our pets. One that is closer to us. They have been staying in Brisbane, 1.5 hours away, and the distance has made it very difficult to see them. Our boys are sweet old dears. We have Monny, our cat, who is around 8 years old. And Midge and Dunk, our 5 year old Zebra Finches. They have all been through so much with us, including huge amounts of travel lately. They just need a quite place to settle for now. I will provide food or money for food, and would love to be able to visit once a week, at least. Or at the very least, just get updated on how they're going. They are good boys, and don't require much energy to care for them. We would greatly appreciate someone who loves animals, and is happy to be open to how long they need to stay, as we can't take them home until we find a suitable space. I just needed to find work in order to find a rental, and now I have, so it shouldn't be too long until we find one. I am on a tight budget too, so i would appreciate if it can be done for around $50 per week, plus extra for food. I am willing to negotiate if necessary. I look forward to hearing from our new carer! Thank you.
